Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders, Financial State


Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

On April 14, 2014, Heritage Financial Corporation ("Heritage" or the "Company") held a Special Meeting of Shareholders ("Special Meeting") to vote upon (1) the approval of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 23, 2013 (the "Merger Agreement"), by and between Heritage and Washington Banking Company ("Washington Banking"), under which Heritage and Washington Banking will combine their organizations in a strategic combination, with Washington Banking merging with and into Heritage (the "Merger"). Immediately following the Merger, Washington Banking's wholly owned subsidiary bank, Whidbey Island Bank, will merge with and into Heritage's wholly owned subsidiary bank, Heritage Bank (the "Merger Proposal"); and (2) a proposal to adjourn the special meeting, if necessary or appropriate, to solicit additional proxies in favor of the Merger Proposal (the "Adjournment Proposal").

There were a total of 16,218,617 shares of the Company's common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Special Meeting and 12,561,041 shares of common stock were represented in person or by proxy, therefore a quorum was present. The approval of the Merger Proposal required the affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock entitled to vote at the Special Meeting.

At the meeting, the Company's shareholders approved the Merger Proposal and the Adjournment Proposal. Although the Adjournment Proposal was approved, the meeting was not adjourned as the Merger Proposal received the required vote for approval by shareholders.

Additional detail on each of the proposals voted on by the shareholders is available in the Company's and Washington Banking's proxy statement/prospectus, which was filed by Heritage with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 14, 2014.

The final results of the voting on each of the matters submitted to a vote of shareholders during the special meeting are as follows:
